New York Times, art critic Ken Johnson describes Don Porcella’s paintings as, “…images like Sasquatch lounging in a pink recliner by a wilderness lake and a mobile home trailer on fire are embodied in a thick, sensuously waxy medium.” Drawing from his own imagery of the suburban, and his interest in folk art, cartoons, and science fiction, Porcella’s work allows the subjective and strange to penetrate humorous representations of a wildly imaginative reality.
